Experience The Gift Of Music

Experience is a night that has been going on for over 10 years. It was created by myself and my first guest was DJ Rich Medina. It was inspired by my trip to NYC when I got the chance to check out Body&Soul and the Shelter. I was blown away by the style of music and the way people where reaction to deep and soulful sounds I was hearing. I wanted to bring that experience to Vancouver and that's where the name came from. It was never about what's hot or cool. It was just about good music. Deep house, funk, soul, afro beat, and hip hop. I started off doing experience 4 times a year and when we opened Fortune we started doing it every Saturday night with my good friend and DJ Marlon J English. The night has been going on for 2 & 1/2 years and the support from the community has been the reason for its success. We have had the pleasures of having some great bands and DJ's that have never been to Vancouver. Here is a list of some of our past guests.

Jojoflores, Zaki Ibrahim, Bobbito Garcia, Rich Medina, Starting From Scratch, Marques Wyatt (Deep), Sean Dimitrie (Bombay Records), Kevin Shui, Jay Tripwire, Madness, Nav (Bombay Records), Jason Lev (Sound Of Gold), Osunlade, Ron Trent, Fred Everything, Mike Madness, Kenny Dope, Fort Knox Five Band, Erica Dee, Kevin Shui, Stanton Worriors, Hedspin , Mark Farina, Aloe Blacc, Charles Webster, Doc Martin, Julius Papp, Alex Alveraz, Dj ALA, Chez Damier, DJ Spinna, Danny Krivit, Stanton Warriors , Herbalisers , Jose James & Band, King Britt.
